Scaling New Heights of Luxury in Abu Dhabi
Rihan Heights redefines grandeur and exclusivity
Issue: Jan 2011
Rihan Heights sets a new benchmark in Urban Living in Abu Dhabi
Located on the north-eastern corner of mixed development Arzanah in Abu Dhabi, Rihan Heights, spans over 38,000 square metres of prime residential land. It consists of five towers ranging from 21 to 32 levels with 854 exclusive apartments and 14 luxurious villas. This premium residential property represents high living at its finest, offering residents picturesque views of the Abu Dhabi skyline, the waterfront and the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
This flagship project developed by Capitala (a joint venture company between CapitaLand and Mubadala) is set to redefine Abu Dhabi’s landscape and to satisfy the growing need for exclusive living spaces in Abu Dhabi.
Located on Prime Residential Land
The Arzanah masterplan is built on one of the few remaining parcels of prime real estate in Abu Dhabi and is minutes away from the city centre and Central Business District
The Abu Dhabi 2030 master plan has local planning authorities envisaging the emirate as a global business hub and home to 3.1 million residents, double the current population figure. Arzanah has been allocated a mammoth 1.4 million square metres of prime land to turn that planning vision into real estate reality.
As phase one of Arzanah, Rihan Heights benefits from the fully integrated mixed development which occupies prime real estate land in the Grand Mosque district on Abu Dhabi’s main island, encompassing the iconic landmark Zayed Stadium and is located just minutes away from the Central Business District and the Abu Dhabi International Exhibition Centre.
Rihan Heights' residents will also enjoy all the conveniences of an integrated development like the walking and biking paths alongside waterways and the beachfront, an internationally recognized school, the Abu Dhabi International Tennis Complex, the Khalifa International Bowling Centre, the Abu Dhabi Ice Rink and the Arzanah Medical Complex.
The Club House of Rihan Heights which will be the centre of all the thoughtfully designed facilities for its residents
Thoughtfully Designed for the Desert
Rihan Heights’ five residential towers are designed to spring forth from an amorphous-shaped landscape podium which in turn emerges stunningly from the ground. Designed by world-renowned architect firm SPARCH, these contemporary white residential towers are constructed to enclose and embrace the podium landscape within, creating exclusive, private residential space in the form of an urban garden and amenities for Rihan Heights’ residents. The towers vary in height and are staggered and rotated slightly for exceptional sculptural composition of the podium. Each podium also boasts a beautiful sky garden and pod at regular intervals of four stories.
Beyond the aesthetics, Rihan Heights’ design also takes into consideration climate conditions in Abu Dhabi. In a city where the average daily temperature can reach a scorching 40 degrees Celsius, the architect firm has wrapped the towers with horizontal fixed brise soleils which shade and define the façade and reduce solar gain.
Fully Equipped for the High Life
Rihan Heights features an impressive and extensive range of facilities and amenities for its residents and guests. They include three swimming pools of a 38-metre main pool, a 25-metre lap pool and a children’s pool, a children’s playground, a 100-square metre gymnasium and fitness suite, a state-of-the-art security and management system and a clubhouse which is designed to be the iconic centre piece and the heart of the residential development, housing numerous of Rihan Height’s communal facilities and retail spaces.
Fitting Finishes for the Discerning
Beautifully designed Show Homes were launched for public viewing
Finishes in Rihan Heights cannot be described any other way but perfect. Spatial luxury is achieved by the use of high ceilings and well designed unit layouts. Windows are laid to look like glass fa?ades and the doors to the apartments do not stick out into the corridors but are instead, set inside to offer privacy to its residents.
An abundance of natural light created through fine architecture is present in all one, two and three-bedroom units. Lighting switches and air-conditioning controls are meticulously set at the same height, offering clean lines throughout the apartments with crisp, cream walls and dark-wood and marble floors, specially sourced from Turkey. The standard for selection of marble flooring is so high that, on average, only five to ten percent of the entire volume of marble mined from a single mountain is used, a strict benchmark which ensures that the quality of finishes within Rihan Heights is of utmost superiority.
Bathroom, bedroom and kitchen fittings are done in wood, with European-style soft-closing doors and drawers. Premium quality inbuilt wardrobes and cabinets are dedicatedly chosen for its solidity and good acoustic features. Walls of the buildings’ exteriors are constructed to be water-proof with composite material.
Technologically Advanced for the Earth-conscious
Besides winning aesthetics, smart technology has also been integrated into Rihan Heights’ design to allow building energy use efficiency. The lift system is programmed to react to traffic movement both upwards and downwards such that waiting times are substantially reduced and occupants get to their desired levels faster.
Gloriously Introduced to the World
Rihan Heights marks a significant milestone at its Topping Out ceremony
Staying true to the grandeur of the exclusive living space in Rihan Heights, a breathtaking Topping Out ceremony was held in November 2010 on the roof of the highest tower on its site. The ceremony was a historic moment and a momentous occasion as Chief Executive Officer of Capitala, Wong Heang Fine explained, “Topping Out has the same significance as the Ground Breaking ceremony. While the Ground Breaking marks the beginning of the project, Topping Out signals the culmination of the bulk of the work on the site. The occasion is used to convey the fact that the final product is nearing its delivery stage.”
579 of its total of 868 units have been sold since its launch for sale, a testament to its appeal.
